Study: Microsoft IIS users complacent about security

Author: JT Smith

Network World Fusion has a story saying a
security consultant warns that a growing number of
servers running Microsoft's Internet
Information Services are "afflicted with a back
door program making them vulnerable to
unauthorized control.

Some 27% of IIS sites tested in August have a
back door shell installed by worms such as
Code Red, Code Red II or sadmind/IIS."
